Benton Harbor hits pause on outdoor fitness area | Benton Harbor

BENTON HARBOR — Adding an outdoor fitness area within the city was put on hold this week as Benton Harbor city commissioners look for the best location.

In October 2021, commissioners approved purchasing the equipment as part of National Fitness Campaign’s efforts to help people get healthier. The purchase was made possible by $150,000 in donations from Whirlpool Corp., Corewell Health Lakeland and the National Fitness Campaign.
